A Wisconsin general power of attorney form enables a representative to handle financial affairs on behalf of another person. A resident, known as the “principal,” chooses an “agent” to handle any type of monetary-related transaction on their behalf and to their benefit. The agent’s duties may include tasks as rudimentary as paying the principal’s bills to more significant matters like managing a business. Unlike the durable version, the general power of attorney voids upon the principal’s incapacitation or when a physician deems them “unfit to think for themselves.”

Signing Requirements (§ 244.05) – Notary public.
